Teaching Math In 1970’s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80. Did he make a profit?

Teaching Math In 1980’s:

A logger sells a truckload of lumber for $100. His cost of production is $80 and his profit is $20.

Your assignment: Underline the number 20.

Teaching Math In 1990’s:

A logger cuts down a beautiful forest because he is selfish and inconsiderate and cares nothing for the habitat of animals or the preservation of our woodlands. He does this so he can make a profit of $20. What do you think of this way of making a living? Topic for class participation after answering the question: How did the birds and squirrels feel as the logger cut down their homes?

(There are no wrong answers, and if you feel like crying, it’s ok. )

Oldies But Goodies



Georgia Governor Kemp signs Constitutional Carry Law.  A bird poops on Biden.


The Sanctuary City of New York should put up a no vacancy sign, until they kill enough people to make it manageable.

Durham needs a staff as big as the January 6 Pigleosi Lie machine.


The Palestinians have been neglected by the news  since the Rainers were attacked by Putin, the psychotic sociopath.  The Israelis aren’t giving up their country voluntary.  With one more win by the dems that honor will go to the once great USA.

Florida wins again.

Trump’s Truth Social platform update.

Dumpster diving can pay off.

Everyone has songs that are not favorites.

Starbucks, Apple, Amazon, etc., support unions, except when they don’t.

I wish CNN was a stand alone company so they would go bankrupt.  ( owned by AT&T )

If you can’t believe Russia, China, America, or almost the entire world MSM, who is left ?

The I’ll Slap Your Face Editor:  Do cats slap each other, LL ?

The I’ll Claw Your Tail Cat:  No, we usually scream, spit, and jump on each other.  Here are some reporters I had to discipline.  They were just young, vain, and shacking-up.

Here are some famous slaps–in their time.

Be careful, especially in sanctuary locations.

Davey Crockett died at the Alamo, fighting for Texas.



Astronomy Picture of the Day

Messier 96

Explanation: Spiral arms seem to swirl around the core of Messier 96 in this colorful, detailed portrait of a beautiful island universe. Of course M96 is a spiral galaxy, and counting the faint arms extending beyond the brighter central region it spans 100 thousand light-years or so. That’s about the size of our own Milky Way. M96 is known to be 38 million light-years distant, a dominant member of the Leo I galaxy group. Background galaxies and smaller Leo I group members can be found by examining the picture. The most intriguing one is itself a spiral galaxy seen nearly edge on behind the outer spiral arm near the 1 o’clock position from center. Its bright central bulge cut by its own dark dust clouds, the edge-on background spiral appears to be about 1/5 the size of M96. If that background galaxy is similar in actual size to M96, then it would be about 5 times farther away.
